SALES of vehicles of Ford Motor Company Philippines, Inc. in November rose 13% from a year ago, an increase the carmaker attributed to “strong demand” for its EcoSport, Everest and Ranger models.
The local subsidiary of the American automaker sold 3,408 vehicles last month, which compares to November last year’s 3,027.
The latest result brought the year-to-date sales volume to 31,994 vehicles.
“We are confident to close out the year on a high note as our showrooms across the country are remaining busy,” Bertrand Lessard, managing director of Ford Philippines, said in a statement issued on Friday.
November sales for the Ranger climbed 28% to 1,003 units from 786 a year ago.
Year-to-date sales for the Ranger, which Ford says is “the country’s second best-selling pick-up truck”, reached 9,225 units, up 25% year on year.
Ford sold 1,100 Everest sports utility vehicles in November, a gain of 15% to bring the 11-month tally to 10,873 units.
It posted a modest “just over one percent” increase in sales of the EcoSport at 1,110 units for a year-to-date volume of 9,849 units.
